I believe that my role as a therapist is to provide support for clients who have decided to enter therapy due to any number of concerns. Addressing life's many challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding the right "fit" with a therapist can prove central in attaining the most positive outcome in a therapeutic relationship. I strive to provide an environment rich in understanding and empathy while helping clients achieve personal goals and reduction of emotional symptoms such as anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide clients with a strong sense of self- awareness while building on individual strengths.

I am a Certified Imago Therapist, specializing in relationship issues.
It is common to feel frustrated and misunderstood at times within our significant relationships, particularly with an intimate partner. When we repeatedly feel unheard and blamed, feelings of resentment may build, contributing to chronic feelings of rupture and disconnection. Over time, this dynamic can become emotionally and physically exhausting. What once felt like a perfect union, may start feeling like a pattern of never-ending conflict. Many couples can fall into this frustrating cycle of miscommunication, feeling misunderstood and resentment.

We thrive from emotional connections and sometimes those connections become strained by misunderstandings or disconnected through loss and we are left feeling distraught. Learn to develop effective communication skills, embrace grief, identify ways to cope, build trusting relationships with your significant other and those you care about. After a painful relationship sometimes we become unsure of the next step. Want someone to understand painful past experiences, anxiety, depression or indecision and how this gets in the way of a life you want to live? Take a deep breath, take the next step and call. No need to wait any longer.

Get the help you need for your teenager! It's easy to feel worried or scared when your teen is showing signs of pain or confusion. Not knowing what to do can create stress in your family. Parents need the guidance and support to help them get through these challenges. Teenagers need their own support and guidance and clarification to help them get through these difficult times.

I offer psychotherapy to adults and adolescents and promote trust in self so that much of the work continues outside the therapy room.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a North Bethesda relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in North Bethesda.
